RoyalJet Abu Dhabi, an award-winning global leader in premium private aviation that caters to the luxury market in the Middle East and across other continents, and Honeywell have signed a letter of intent to extend current Ka-band connectivity services to include RoyalJet’s latest Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) fleet addition.
Honeywell’s JetWave high-speed satellite communications hardware and airtime services will enable secure, high-speed Wi-Fi on all devices on board.
Connectivity has become a basic requirement for business aviation as a means for improving productivity.
Honeywell’s JetWave satellite communications system allows business aviation passengers to get connected, stay connected and optimize the connectivity experience via Inmarsat Aviation’s GX Ka-band network.
RoyalJet passengers will be able to access high-speed internet to carry out daily work tasks, including videoconferencing meetings.
“Today’s business jet passengers are very tech-savvy and expect to use their devices, especially their mobile phones, from the moment they board an aircraft to the moment they land,” said Mohamed Hussain Ahmed, CEO of RoyalJet.
“To ensure that our clients have a smooth experience we, at RoyalJet, aim to provide them with the best services and surpass their expectations.
“We have partnered with Honeywell and their connectivity solutions help us address our passengers’ need for modern comfort and connectivity, allowing access to reliable speeds, thereby fulfilling customer demands.”
“We are proud to have supported RoyalJet for over five years to leverage connectivity in their expanding fleet to provide a more connected experience for their customers,” said Nadya Krisko, senior director, Business Aviation, EMEAI, Honeywell Aerospace.
“Honeywell provides solutions that address our customers’ connectivity needs, with a wide range of service plans that provide customers with the flexibility to select the plan and pricing that best suits their operations.”
